they will be bruising. none more than the hearing before the senate armed services committee over the new defense secretary, chuck hagel. the hearings could start as early as this week. the white house has mounted a vigorous defense. hagel says his record on iran, gays and the military has been distorted. members of the armed services committee will question hagel. but today on "face the nation," senator john mccain called hagel a friend, though he has questions and is annoyed at how the white house has handled the nomination. >> usually wprevious presidents, republican and democrat, when they are considering nominations, they call in the other side and the key members on the other party and say, hey, i am thinking about nominating mr. "x," what do you think about it? there has been none of that. >> reporter: the former secretary of the joint chiefings and colin powell gave his backing to hagel, even though he was one of the largest critics of the war in iraq, a war that powell helped to sell to the american people. he tried to stop the surge, calling it the biggest foreign policy blunder since
they could be moved on guns. you wrote in the "huffington post," advocating reducing defense spending so you can spend more money and invest in the united states. the question is in the negotiations in congress over the spending do you see that happening? >> we've got to make it happen. again, it's got to be the voice of the american people that will make it happen. people don't realize that 60% of our discretionary money go to the defense. wewe need and want a strong defense, with you but quite frankly out dateed cold war-era weapons can be taken off the table. there are many, many ways we can save money with defense in our pentagon budget, and never even touch anything that would affect our troops and their benefits and their families or national defense. nothing is off of the table and we have to under that defense can't be off of the table. we have to keep defense on the table as part of the negotiations as we move forward. i cannot accept a plan that's going to cut domestic spending by 8%. but i can look at a plan that looks at waste fraud and abuse cuts in the pentagon that will create
as defense attorneys argued mubarak didn't know about the killings. no date has been set for a retrial several others will be on part of that trial who were awe quitted in the previous trials. going forward mubarak will be pending a review. he's facing other corruption charges. it is likely he will stay in jail for the significant and foreseeable future. mubarak was reportedly ill. there are responconstant reports ill and that he has fallen and broken ribs. it is not clear whether or not he will be stuck in his house because of medical condition. this going forward this will be a retrial turning in real problems for egypt going forward. it has been a violent and very spo sort of chaotic scene in egypt the past few years since mubarak stepped down. it isn't clear what will happen with the retrial being demanded by the court. a lot of egyptians felt hmubara should have been given the death penalty for his roles in ordering the deaths and crack down on the protestors. of course now there will be a retrial. nobody knows what will happen. it is possible we will see more protests or possible
to assure the russians about future u.s. missile defense moves. >> it will be hadder this time. i don't see where u.s. and russian relations can go and that will be a problem foe the president starting, of course, with syria but iran is the bigger issue that remains undecided and we have gotten some russian help so far on iran but it doesn't mean we will get russian help with the next step. >> the arab spring signaled the fall of middle east leaders with whom u.s. officials had for 30 years cultivated careful relationship. >> president obama called on egypt's mubarak to step down. >> a change must take place. allocated u.s. resources to support a no-fly zone in libya leading to the killing of muammar qaddafi. but in syria, calling numerous times for bashar al-assad to step down, a civil continues there and the united states has not publicly stepped in. >> there is in doubt overall president obama's legacy toward the middle east is one of limited american actism. that is shown by how we handled egypt, libya, syria, iraq. >> there are unanswered questions of the investigation into the 9/11 at
being forced on them? joining me from virginia is kim kutanela . author of the book last line of defense. >> good to be with you. >> last line of defense may be in the state level. >> that is thethesis of the book we have writ yen comes out on february 12th, next month. we are living with it, with the obama administration and we have another four years to go now . what we have done, successfully in some cases and not in others to fight back is to take them to court. when the environmental protection agency over steps its legal boundaries we sue them and we recently won a case of the epa that is employment prevention agency because they are so good at that. they are very good at that and our co-plaintiff was a democratic board of supervisor, biggest county of virginia where i grew up. we saved the taxpayer in fairfax county $250 million and our state department of transportation another 70 million. it was enormous win and it was an experiment by the epa, where we said and fairfax county said they are breaking the law. they said it is another way of doing what we are doing for 40 years and
battle, some will be bruising, none more so than the president's pick for defense secretary, chuck hagel. those hearings could start as early as this week we're told by senate sources and the white house mounted a vigorous defense and hagel says his record on israel, iran and gays in the military has been distorted and the senate armed services committee, kelly ayotte says what worries her most is the reaction from iran. >> what i want to make sure is that iran is actually not hopeful, but they're fearful, as r ult of our nominee from the secretary of perspective. >> former chairman of joint chiefs and secretary of state colin powell gave his backing to hagel today then though then senator hagel was one of the largest critics of the iraq war, a war that powell helped sell to the american people. and hagel later tried to stop the surge in iraq, calling it the biggest foreign policy blunder since vietnam. >> superbly qualified based on his overall record, based on his service to the country, based on how he feels about troops and veterans and families. >> reporter: the president is gearin
. they don't want to cut defense. >> cenk: that's true. hey, man i'm perfectly happy to do that. let's go to michael shure. the language is good. the frame something good. it seems strong. excuse me if i'm a little skeptical that he won't negotiate over the debt cerealing. >> you're excused for being skeptical, you're fine. you have every reason to feel that way although i think the way he handled the fiscal cliff was a departure--i think he bent over a little bit less than he has in the past in terms of going back on what he said he was going to do. he got americans to--wealthy americans to pay more in taxes. not the specific $250,000, quarter of a million. >> when we came to the so-called fiscal cliff there was a question that the american people had to resolve or the politicians did between the clinton-era tax rates where we had great prosperity and the bush-era tax rate where we didn't have that prosperity. for some reason we chose to go with the bush-era tax rates for 99% of americans. that makes no sense. >> but again-- >> and boehner is saying now he's literally i got 99% of what i
of approval for chuck hagel as the next secretary of defense. hagel's nomination is another example we think here at "hardball" of obama's newfound fighting spirit, and we like it, of course. from the debt ceiling to the nra to the neocons. taking them on. the president is sticking it to his opponents, and he's winning. >>> and the house of representatives is voting on a relief package for the victims of superstorm sandy. will republicans stand up to help those hit by the storm? or stand in the way? >>> let me finish with a republican party that's beginning to sound and look like a pack of moonshiners. they don't like those revenuers. this is "hardball," the place for politics. with the spark cash card from capital one, sven gets great rewards for his small business! how does this thing work? oh, i like it! [ garth ] sven's small business earns 2% cash back on every purchase, every day! woo-hoo!!! so that's ten security gators, right? put them on my spark card! why settle for less? testing hot tar... great businesses deserve great rewards!

category that include the most popular guns used for self-defense, competition, and hunting. when president obama promises that no one's talking about taking away your hunting rifle or your self-defense handgun, it matters that gun control activists may, in fact, be talking about taking away your hunting rifle or your self-defense handgun, whether they know it or not. so let's forgo the arbitrary, ambiguous, fearmongering terms and get real specific about what we actually mean by gun control. it may be politically effective to rail against rapid fire, high capacity, assault weapons. doesn't actually mean anything. so if we're serious, we should at least start by getting the terms right. okay. that does it for "the cycle." martin, it's all yours. >> just a quick question. how many rounds did jared loughner fire off before he was tackled? >> what's your point? >> how many rounds had he fired off? >> i'm not sure. i don't remember. >> 31. >> okay. >> he was actually tackled because he was reloading. >> we should be trying to stop crazy people and criminals, martin, from shooting one person, no
best defense is i've never tested positive. >> reporter: he didn't just lie to reporters, fans, sponsors, and even cancer survivors, he lied under oath, too. >> how many times do i have to say it? >> i just want to make sure your testimony is clear. >> if it can't be any clearer that i've never taken drugs. >> reporter: along way, armstrong's great lie left a trail of human collateral damage. people who went from friend to enemy the minute they threatened to expose him. >> it's a long time coming. i think it's a huge steph. >> reporter: frankie andreu was his best friend and teammate until he and his wife testified they heard him admit he took drugs. armstrong went on the attack, accusing frankie and betsy of lying. >> she said in her deposition she hates me. >> reporter: why would he say the same thing if you don't? >> probably to support his wife. >> reporter: after that, frankie went from friend to pariah almost overnight. >> i'd go to events and i didn't know who my friend was, who my foe was, who would shake my hand, who would spit at me in disgust. i got e-mails, traitor,
among them an those cabinet nominations including chuck hagel for secretary of defense, both democrats and republicans here still have a lot of questions about hagel and his views. they plan to ask those questions at the confirmation hearings. also congress has got to deal with the debt ceiling. we're hitting it yet again. sometime in mid-february, authorities believe. and this time it looks like republicans will be pushing for cuts and social will be on the table. finally, you mentioned vice president biden meeting today with cabinet members to finalize recommendations on guns including pushing for an assault weapons ban, but also what he said is a comprehensive approach to gun control. the nra and others don't believe in assault weapons ban can pass in congress. we'll get his recommendations tomorrow. >> thank you. >>> colin powell is speaking out on nbc's "meet the press" he endorsed chuck hagel to be the new defense secretary. he said hagel would do a great job at the pentagon. powell also fired harsh words at his own republican party. >> there's also a dark -- a dark vain of intol
absurd defenses by the republicans, which i'll get to in a second. ana kasparian joins me here. first let's start with president obama's press conference today. let me show you what he said. >> obama: they are common sense measures. they have the support of the majority of the american people. yet, that doesn't mean that any of this will be easy to enact or implement. if it were we would already have universal background check. the ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines would never have been allowed to expire. it will depend on congressional action. they need to bring it up for a vote, and the american people need to make sure that they do. >> cenk: well, president obama's proposals were strong today including a ban on new assault weapons limits on high capacity magazines, expanded background checks and tougher gun trafficking laws. anna, what else did he do? >> those are proposals and they do need to undergo congressional apowers. however he passed 23 executive actions. as he was signing those actions let's take a look at the video he did so with children behind him. this was
on chuck hagel. hagel, who president obama nominated as his next defense secretary is facing criticism over israel and iran. powell says he believes those concerns will be put to rest once senators meet the nominee face to face. >> he's superbly qualified based on his overall record, based on his service to the country, based on how he feels about troops and veterans, families. i think he will do a great job as secretary of defense. i think in his confirmation hearings, all of these issues that you raise, that others have raised, he'll be prepared to deal with. i read some of the responses that he has already put together. i think he will make a very, very spirited defense of his position. i think he'll be confirmed. >>> other foreign leaders are less convinced. top republicans on the senate armed services and foreign relations committees responsible for the pick for the pentagon. >> can you be for senator hagel? in some ways he was the chairman of your -- co-chair of your campaign in 2000. he would seem to be your kind of guy. a veteran. a guy who has been shot at in -- >> he's a veteran,
of defense have a trust relationship. they're going to go through some difficult times in the next few years. if senator hagel isotology take on a tfk of this magnitude and the president trusts him, i think those are two really important things because it not going to be an easy four years. >> and, general, finally mali, we have a situation now where the troops that we helped are now turning -- they've become islamic rebels. they're fighting against the regime. we are being asked to play some support role perhaps with drones and other roles for the french troops. >> i think we're going to find that the whole world, but particularly africa and the middle east are changing and they're going to keep changing. i think what america has to first do is do our homework. don't be surprised by these very, very complex situations as they evolve. don't be surprised that syria is extraordinarily complex. mali is complex and going to get worse. then we've got to look at each one both individually to understand the nuances of that. also, within a wider pattern, because if you look too narrowly, the actions
on the whole has been concerned for the defense department for awhile now. the defense department has created in recent years the africa command and also a joint special operations task force was deployed to the transsahara region of the country -- in early 2000. it was part of the previous bush administration's global war on terror. so the white house and the pentagon have always had their eye on that area. possibly becoming a safe haven for al-qaeda and al-qaeda-affiliated groups. but i think the number of incidents that have happened in the recent weeks have sort of drawn most people's attention to it now. >> john: thank you very much. national defense and national security staff writer for the hill carlo munoz. i hope you'll come back to keep us updated on this development. >> will do. thanks. >> john: thank you so much. from the hostage crisis in algeria to the covert american drone war, i'm pleased to be joined by filmmaker and activist robert greenwald. the documentary drones exposed. thank you for joining us, mr. greenwald. >> my pleasure. >> john: before we begin talking about drone
experts. if the pentagon escapes the deep, immediate cut of sequestration, most agree that large defense cuts are looming. the man overseeing the cut is confirmed, defense secretary nominee chuck hagel. in august of 2011, hagel said the defense departmented was bloated, adding the pentagon needs to be pared down. i don't think the military looked at themselves strategically, critically in a long, long time. the u.s. military has gone from a cold war model of being able to fight two simultaneous wars to a 1-1/2 war strategy under president obama. given cuts in recent years. >> if we sudply have a crisis in the gulf with iran, if we sudply face a nuclear issue, which forces us to deal with preventative strikes we have a different military spending profile again. >> the u.s. army is preparing to eliminate two of the eight brigades in europe and may cut eight more brigades overall, reducing the army by 80,000 troops. hagel endorsed deep nuclear cuts backing a report by the group global zero calling for 80% reduction in the u.s. nuclear weapons arsenal that could save $100 billion in ten year
our defense department, at such and such a level. you need to send out social security checks. you need to make sure that you are paying to care for our veterans. they lay all of this out for me. and because they have the spending power. and so i am required by law to go ahead and pay these bills. separately, they also have to authorize the raising of the debt ceiling in order to make sure that those bills are paid. and so what congress can't do is tell me to spend x, and then say but we're not going to give you the authority to go ahead and pay the bills. >> the economist made a laundry list of what would happen if congressional republicans refused to raise the debt limit. failure to raise the debt ceiling would force immediate spending cuts equal for 6% of gdp. not only would that threaten to send the economy back into recession, it would also deprive many of money needed to meet their own obligations, setting off a chain reaction of defaults that could incite investors to dump their holdings, driving up interest rates. joining me now is ezra klein, an msnbc columnist, who could
that they have under the second amendment and who are involved in the shooting sports or use firearms for self-defense. we think they are going to be hurt. >> the argument against an assault weapons ban was made concisely by haley barbour who said, quite simply, if you make it a crime to have a gun, only criminals will have gun. but many lawmakers -- mostly democrats -- have been trying to poke holes in that argument. and senator chris murph frecontact connect, who attend several funerals for sandy hook students thinks the national rifle association is flat-out wrong. >> newtown fundamentally changed things. the nra doesn't get this. they have to come to the table on gun control as they are saying they are coming to the table on mental health because their previous allies and backers in the house and the senate are not with them anymore. >> reporter: senator joe mansion, the democrat from west virginia, endorsed by the nra and famously ran a 2010 campaign ad, shooting the cap & trade bill with a rifle, has an all-in approach. he thinks it would be hard to pass legislation that focuses on only one elem
in law to take effect. republicans live with the defense cut it's not that -- they can live with the other cuts. >> bret: journalist has historical perspective on the fun control effort. up next, gullible or culpable? the fake girlfriend of college football superstar. so...how'd it go? well, dad, i spent my childhood living with monks learning the art of dealmaking. you've mastered monkey-style kung fu? no. priceline is different now. you don't even have to bid. master hahn taught you all that? oh, and he says to say (translated from cantonese) "you still owe him five bucks." your accent needs a little work. schwab bank was built with all e value and convenience tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 investors want. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 like no atm fees, worldwide. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 and no nuisance fees. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 plus deposit ches with mobile deposit. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 and manage your cash and investments tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 with schwab's mobile app. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 no wonder schwab bank has grown to over 70 billion in assets. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 so if you're looking
